Learning from CSA Pilot Year
A lot of customers have asked me where I’ve been. I’ve been working on Year 2 of the CSA program at Clover. This means calling up farmers, researching farm storage bins, and meeting with Edible Boston, WBUR, and The Boston Herald (more on why later).
This has been a really exciting project for me. I’ve gotten CSAs since I was a junior in college, and now I get to be involved in something that might dramatically affect the amount of local produce entering the Boston area. We’re partnering with 6 of the best/most exciting/most diverse farms in New England: Flats Mentor, Next Barn Over, Drumlin/Mass Audubon, Red Fire, The Kitchen Garden, and Enterprise Farm.
February 1 we launch sign-ups. I thought I’d share some of the lessons we learned from last year’s program, and what you can look forward to this year.
